In 2009 he studied orchestral conducting at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music in Berlin and studied piano with Fabio Bidini. As well as attending masterclasses with pianist András Schiff, he has also performed as a piano soloist and double bassist with the Israel Philharmonic. His orchestral work has led him to work under top conductors such as Zubin Mehta, Kurt Masur and Daniel Barenboim, as well as Gustavo Dudamel.
